Staining your concrete patio to look like tile.

I was so pleased with the DIY project on our back patio! I stained the concrete to look like tile. We used painter's tape to create the look of grout lines, and we used a concrete stain from Lowe's to stain the concrete. For a step by step tutorial, just click on the link below.

    Is there a lot of maintenance? What about water stains? Does it wear well in the sun?

    Thank you for your easy instructions! I have a large concrete slab in the backyard where an old detached kitchen/storage building once stood. It's ugly! In a few weeks, it will be my awesome new patio!
